About This Item

Woodstock, Cape Town, South Africa: Michael Stevenson, 2008. Softcover. VG- (Average wear to cover edges, ex-art library mark on first page; otherwise nice.). Orange & illus. wraps, 144 pp., color illus. Issued in conjunction with a 2008 exhibition of artwork by 25 African artists. "Disguie has special relevance in Africa. The implications of outward appearance are amplified because of the historical significance of skin colour. The twenty-five artists in this exhibition are all from the continent or one of its diasporas. Some choose to expose, other to camouflage their heritage. Others do neither. In their work, one travels from Nollywood to Moscow, and from Teheran to Mount Umhlazi. The exhibition navigates between stillness and cacophony. Like disguise itself, it alternates between attracting and deflecting attention -- attention to the work, to its maker and to its subject matter." (intro).
